Although Facebook originally started as a means for college and university students to keep in touch, the requirements have relaxed so that anyone can join. The only requirement for someone to join Facebook is that he be over 13 years old. This is due to privacy laws for the Internet
To create a Facebook account, the person should go to the Facebook main page and click the "Create an Account" link. After that, he should enter the information like name, contact information, location and date of birth. Other information can be added after the signup process is complete but some basic information is needed for the profile.
